SMU Woman’s Club raises scholarship funds with cookbook project; recipes accepted until Dec. 15, 2014

Stock photo of gingerbread manThe SMU Woman’s Club is seeking festive and favorite recipes from all over the University community for a cookbook project to benefit its scholarship fund.

All recipes are welcome, including side dishes, main courses, desserts, sweets, food gifts, game-day snacks, kosher and ethnic treats, and vegetarian recipes, says Kathy Barry, Woman’s Club president. The deadline for submissions is Friday, Dec. 15, 2014.

The cookbook is scheduled for publication in October 2015; ordering information will be available in the spring. All proceeds benefit the SMU Woman’s Club Scholarship Fund, which helps support a female University student in need of financial assistance.

Over the past two years, the Woman’s Club has provided a total of $16,800 in monetary support, Barry says – including funding for a young woman from a family of four children who were all paying their own way through school. “She told us that without this support, she could not have stayed at SMU,” Barry adds.

For more information, or to send in your favorite recipe, email Kathy Barry.

For the 8th holiday season in a row, SMU Forum is requesting festive recipes from all over the University community, and the world. And to start things off, we’re sharing a recipe that may change your mind about the much-maligned holiday fruitcake.

Denise Gee, a public information officer in the SMU Office of News and Communications, leads a double life as a cookbook author and entertaining guru – and as a former foods editor with Southern Living, she knows her way around great recipes. Her latest work, Sweet On Texas: Lovable Confections From the Lone Star State, was published by Chronicle Books in October.

Sweet On Texas contains 65 carefully selected dessert recipes, combined with Gee’s own historical notes, fun facts and inimitably warm writing about the people and places of Texas.
